2018-05-11 Maranasati: Grateful for Life and Death (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 51:51
  Eugene Cash
Maranasati leads to being real and being grateful for both life and death. As we mature and deal directly with the truth of death we value life and the preciousness of existence. This reality brings gratefulness of all that is given–– our bodies, hearts, minds, the earth, sky, universe and each moment.

2018-05-11 Shaping our world through the way of looking 61:57
  Yuka Nakamura
The talk discusses the role of perception in creating and shaping our experience and the problems that arise due to our lack of awareness regarding the fabricated nature of awareness and the distortions of perception. It presents a way of practice that involves playing and experimenting with different skilful ways of looking. 1. Seeing in terms of the three characteristics, 2. Seeing through the lenses of goodwill and friendliness, 3. Imaginal, creative and symbolic ways of looking.

2018-05-11 Day 6 Morning Instructions: Aspirations for living from the perspective of our deathbed. (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 45:02
  Nikki Mirghafori
In this morning's guided meditation, first we settle in with the body, appreciating the intimacy and the impersonality of experience, holding both experiences equally valid. Then, we look at our lives from the vantage point of our deathbed (far in the future, only for the purpose of this thought exercise) and reflect on aspirations that arise for living our life in this precious human birth, however long we have left.
